IASCA launches automated exam system for its qualifications

The International Arab Society of Certified Accountants (IASCA) has replaced its International Arab Certified Public Accountant (IACPA) paper-based exams with an electronic exam system developed by Talal Abu-Ghazaleh E-Solutions.

IASCA founder and chairman Talal Abu-Ghazaleh said the system was developed in a user-friendly manner, which also ‘saves time, cost and effort to keep abreast with the requirements of the age of digital transformation’.

The system uses a portal to take the exam and a portal for correcting and marking exams and for releasing results.

Abu-Ghazaleh noted that the automation of the exam system follows the success of automating IASCA’s curriculum and training courses to become digital and interactive.

IASCA executive director Salem Al Quri said that the traditional paper-based exam system have been discontinued for qualifications held by IASCA, including the Arab Certified management Accountant, IFRS Expert Certificate, and the International Public Sector Accounting Standards.
